About Kathy Richardson

London based but internationally born and raised, I am a Dance Artist, Yoga teacher, creative mover and anatomy enthusiast. The synchronicity of mind and body is a part of my everyday life, anything from a physical practice to daily meditation.

I have worked with bodies in motion for over two decades and although progress has been anything but linear, my journey has taken me to dancing in internationally acclaimed companies, workshopping choreographic processes in schools, teaching yoga in the tropics and studying the human form under an array of teachers from a multitude of backgrounds. What I have is an ever-growing respect of the power of movement meditation and what I know is how it has highly enhanced my human experience.

My journey with yoga began over a decade ago, primarily as a tool to enhance and compliment the rigorous training of becoming a professional dancer. Very quickly I found myself evermore inspired by the depth and potential yoga has to offer both on and off the mat, for body and mind. 

I am passionate about Anatomy and Physiology and how this informs yoga practitioners.

About Luana Galoni

Luana began her yoga journey in 2001. She felt a natural calling to yoga and integrated Ashtanga into her daily life. Luana felt blessed to experience the profound effects of yoga, which taught her that we can overcome obstacles and achieve balance by connecting with our inner power.

This led her to India in 2012 where she undertook her 200hr teacher training in Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga with her teacher Lalit Kumar at the Himalaya Yoga Valley School and continued her holistic journey to the shamans in Peru, to qualifying as a Reiki Master.

Luana has studied with and been inspired by many renowned yoga teachers and is currently completing her 300hr teacher training in Vinyasa Flow with Alessandra Pecorella also the UK trainer of Shiva Rea’s PranFlow. Luana also trained under Kristin Campbell in Tapasya (Hot Yoga) at Triyoga London. 

Through yoga Luana invites people to uncover the fullness and authenticity of who we are. Her classes are challenging and dynamic within a playful and supportive atmosphere. The classes use a focus on breath to assist in healing and find stillness in the mind and body.
